Actors should come dressed to move and be prepared to participate in some collaborative devising exercises. 

We are looking to cast an ensemble of 12-14 actors and seeking a diverse cast with all roles open to students and members of the community of all ages, races, genders and identities. Dancers, singers & musicians are encouraged to attend!
